Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised Leicester City playmaker Riyad Mahrez ahead of the crunch top of the table clash, according to the Daily Mail.
The Algerian midfielder is one of the frontrunners in the race to win the Player of the Year award, dazzling in the Foxes’ shock title surge.
He has 14 goals and 10 assists this season, linking him with big money moves away from the King Power Stadium.
He joined the club for just £400,000 in January 2014 from Le Harve, slipping under the radar of many top clubs around Europe.
When asked if the 24-year old could go down as one of the best signings in history, Wenger replied: ‘Yes but today we live in a strange society.”
”Yes of course it is disappointing to miss out on people like Mahrez.”
The Gunners chief is widely regarded as an expert of French football, having picked up some bargains there in his time.
The likes of Nicolas Anelka were plucked from relative obscurity, before leaving for big money as world superstars.
